Display simple throughput statistics for network interface controllers. Requires Linux kernel >= 2.6

Project Description

Display simple throughput statistics for network interface controllers. Requires Linux kernel >= 2.6

Output can be viewed in terminal. Additionally you’ll find the output in a file suitable for parsing from within your application. The program can be executed as daemon to provide you reliable network throughput numbers at any given time.

Example output

eth0 thruput [bytes/s]                      total               1s               5s              15s
Receiving                                 1982418              416              416              412
Transmitting                              4029588             1296             1296             1287
